Many people can't just quit their jobs. It's better to resolve if possible unless the abuse is so widespread that it's hopeless. I took a boss to HR years ago and the process was fair. I did get permission from the boss before going to HR. We were able to continue our working relationship with no more problems. There really are some people out there who'll stop their shenanigans if higher ups demand it. I'm amazed that none of you gave any credence to my telling you that I personally know a W-M associate who used the open door policy and had no problems from having done so. My emails this morning are not about "poor me" but to let you see how I feel about this forum. One more question. Do the Walmart haters on this forum EVER shop at W-M? I hope you don't. I think it's uncanny that many of the people in a Charlotte, NC suburb who worked hard to get signatures to petition against plans for a W-M in their area are big shoppers there today. One of the women in this neighborhood says they all laugh about it now. I believe that if you believe a company isn't ethical, you should be big enough not to walk in and take advantage of their low prices. With many people it's about ego---not wanting anyone to think they'd stoop to a discount box.
